Christina Wilbers

This is my tenth year to teach at Russellville High School. For the year 2018-2019, I am teaching Family & Consumer Science, Clothing Management 1 and Housing & Interior Design.

The field of family and consumer sciences (FCS), founded as home economics, is the comprehensive body of skills, research, and knowledge that helps people make informed decisions about their well being, relationships, and resources to achieve optimal quality of life. The field represents many areas, including:

  • Human development
  • Personal and family finance
  • Housing and interior design
  • Food science, nutrition, and wellness
  • Textiles and apparel
  • Consumer issues
